Just a quick post for any A level teachers of French. While trying to find resources in Spanish on the topic of bullying I came across this excellent site in French (click here). Typical! The videos are a great discussion point and the website provides some useful resources. The videos and other resources can be downloaded directly from the site as well (click here).
I am new to the amazing website www.ver-taal.com. A colleague introduce me to it + I love it. I assume it is a Dutch site + it has some great activities for both Spanish and French. I am particularly keen on the “reportajes” www.ver-taal.com/telediario.htm + “anuncios” sections www.ver-taal.com/anuncios.htm .
Flights cancelled all over northern Europe due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland has drawn attention to plate tectonics and will be providing geography teachers with some excellent footage to illustrate how volcanos occur. At my previous school we taught a unit for many years on volcanos in Iceland. The resources are attached below. We taught this as part of a Content and Language Integrated Learning programme (CLIL). This topic area could also be addressed when looking at town and country or environment and La Réunion is a francophone focus for such work in French. One of the worksheets below is based on the French TV programme “C’est Pas Sorcier-volcans, séismes et tout le tremblement” which can be bought on Amazon.fr.
With the end of term approaching those teaching Spanish may want to do some work on a carol. Campana Sobre Campana is a famous one but was also recorded by the Mexican pop group RBD (Rebelde). This gives you an opportunity to learn about the band, its members and also provides an opportunity to look at Mexico. Below is a PowerPoint, a worksheet on two of the members of the band as well as a link to the RBD website. www.grupo-rbd.com
